Title: Linguistic Policies and the Survival of Regional Languages in France and Britain
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403949832
Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Minority Languages and Communities
Description:

It was traditionally assumed that having a single official language was a
necessary condition for the wellbeing of the state, particularly in France and
Britain. This assumption is now questioned, and the regional languages are
making, in some cases, an impressive comeback. It is the story of their
decline, their survival and, more recently their efforts to re-establish
themselves as effective tools of normal communication which is tackled in
this book. Each language is analyzed in terms of its development from the
earliest times, through its period of decline to present-day efforts at
regeneration.
